TitleLessons in Leadership: The American Presidency

This course provides opportunities for students to study and analyze the complexity of leadership by examining the lives and actions of selected U.S. presidents.  Students will exam, critique, and report on matters of presidential leadership as noted by historians, journalists, leadership experts, and the presidents themselves.  The overall purpose of the course is to abstract “lessons in leaders”, if any, and to test the proposition that U.S. presidents should be “leaders of character”.
